And Into Oblivion

Today is going to slip away.

Away and into oblivion.

Nothing out of the ordinary happened

To change my life.

And I?  I did nothing

To change the lives that intersected with me

In this day.

But I lived it.

I lived it as best I could.

And when it slips away,

It will have been expended,

Perhaps rationally and calmly,


With nothing left unspent.

Today is slipping away

But I

Am not going with it.


Sunup to Sundown.
